The Olympics….my take.

Will they never learn? Recently another blogger posted 5 questions about the ongoing 2014 Winter Olympics, and sports in general, for readers to answer. I tried my best to be serious…really I did. I almost had it posted when that little gremlin that sits on my shoulder erased it and posted this instead:

1. QHave you watched or do you plan to watch any of the 2014 Olympics?

A. No. And I won’t until they make Synchronized Bobsledding an Olympic sport.

2. QWhat is your favorite winter Olympic event? Would you ever want to be an expert in that sport?

A. Avalanche Avoidance – mixed pairs. I could easily be the expert official that starts the avalanche with my 12 gauge.

3.QHave you ever met an Olympic athlete?

Yes. My great-nephew is a track star for Olympic High School in Bremerton, Washington.

4. QDo you have a favorite athlete? Name sport.

A. Toss up between Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez. The sport: Individual injecting of performance enhancing drugs – dominant butt cheek only.

5. What is your favorite exercise or sport? Is there a reason why?

A. Making wall shadow puppets. I am the reigning world champion in the  category of “professional wall puppeteers.” Here is my winning entry from last year:
